In a debate before legal scholars and law student's, Christine O'Donnell either didn't know the First Amendment or disagreed with Democratic nominee's Chris Coons' contention that the Amendment prohibits the government from establishing religion.
It appears that she may be playing semantics and this was evidenced by commenters below some of the articles. They contend that the words "separation of church and state" are not in the text of the Constitution.
Apparently they are unable to grasp what implicit means. Damn those drafters, if only they would have drawn pictures with bright colors depicting what the First Amendment really means we wouldn't be having this debate. Or would we?
Funny that these same commenters have no problem interpreting the Second Amendment. But then again, maybe they know very well that they have the right to wear sleeveless shirts.
